Please, Adobe, for God's sake: add already all those still missing original Fireworks CS6 layer blend modes to Photoshop OMG!!! I am trying to migrate like for a year or two but still turn back to FW cos Photoshop is still missing all FW special blend modes (40+ vs 27 in PS)

Firework’s »Additive« seems to correspond to Photoshop’s »Linear Dodge (Add)«.

ad Subtractive: YESS!!! It seems to me like absolutely correct  - thank you so much (already tested with my real project - THUMBS UP)

ad Additive: detto - great, thank you very much...so far so good. ;-)

So now just the last of my actual 3 needed blends: SOFT DODGE (if you can - fingers crossed), BUT if you'd be able imitating the others that'd be SUPERB!

Sorry, »Soft Dodge« is a bit of a head-scratcher for me so far ...
Could you post a plain left to right gradient and a 90 ̊ angled one superimposed to with that Blend Mode (see screenshot)? Maybe that could provide more clues, though it seems doubtful as that mode might be affecting luminance and hue differently. 

But maybe someone else has more insight anyway? 

You could also post over on

There more Photoshop users might chime in and provide assistance (maybe solutions even).

You mean two B&W gradient rectangles exactly as seen on your picture with the top one having applied that SOFT DODGE blend mode? If so, here it is:

...eh, sorry - MISTAKE (it was actually Soft Burn), this one here is SOFT DODGE :-)



+ so I also posted to that other forum as you suggested, here is the link if you are interested:
